The European Council for Plasticisers and Intermediates
ECPI represents the interests of 26 member companies that are involved in the production of plasticisers. Plasticisers are esters (mainly phthalates) which are used generally in the production of flexible plastic products, predominantly PVC.
The new Plasticisers Information Centre website provides a wide range of information on plasticisers as well as links to more specialist sources of knowledge such as the Phthalates Information Centre Europe, and to trade organisations like the European Council for Plasticisers and Intermediates (ECPI).
The Plasticisers Information Centre Europe carries further links to the latest information on individual plasticizers such as DEHP, DINP, DIDP, BBP and DBP, as well as to websites on relevant applications such as the use of phthalates in medical devices, food contact materials and flooring.
